: I call the Bosch Laser Distance Measurer my magical measuring machine because, after buying a fixer-upper home this year, it was the single most useful tool I had in 2011. If you're moving, remodeling, or otherwise dealing with any sort of home or office re-arrangement, nothing beats this tool. Unlike cheaper measuring tools that use sound for taking measurements and a laser only for sighting, this actually uses a laser for extremely accurate measurements. Our bottom line: everything fit on moving day.
